This is the second time Indonesian government have a big failure in research area. Of course research always possible to fail, but this fail is too big since it’s become national issue. Its an ironic the guy who cause the failure is the same guy. We all knows that only donkeys can fall in the hole for twice. What I mean is about Supertoy Rice.
It’s a normal thing if Indonesia wants to solve food problems. You can produce more rice within the same area. But research has a method to follow or your research will be either over budget or totally failed. I’m just a student who trying to give my opinions so this problems will not occur in the future.
1. Do research with tight procedure.
Both in Supertoy and blue energy has a wrong method. Both are not well followed research procedure such as : It must be reviewed with scientist and controlled environment. Because who’s in charge for this research doesn’t have experiences in research area.
2. Create a great business plan, including marketing strategies.
Just because you are sit on top of the government doesn’t meant you dont need to do anything!. Create a well planned business strategy how to turn your business into profitable.
3. Work with professionals
Well, what I saw is no professionals are involved. You can hiring professional to work on the research. I can’t believe that Research and Technology Department are just sitting in their office watching this failure twice.
4. Don’t do corruption.
I think this is clear enough.
Maybe all those opinions are accepted as newbie opinion. But this is the only what I can do for my country. I will happy if there is no similar problems in the future.
